I Built A Goddamn Professional-Grade Blanket Fort And You Can Too

    I'm not lonely; I'm solitary with style.

    You will need a bed.

    Buy a tent.

    Salvage the pole pins.

    Tie the webbing to the pole pin.

    Screw it.

    Make the frame.

    Drape the blanket over the frame.

    Hook your lantern to the loop on the frame.

    Turn out the main lights and see how cool it looks.

    Now you are free to retire into your kingdom of soft fabrics and neutral colours with a boldly contrasting book.
